A different red, white and blue

Found this striped paper while I was looking for blue papers and just had to use it. It is blue after all. The sketch is rather loosely my interpretation of the Magnolia Birthday Bash challenge 9. I used the following copics: C1, E00, 11, R20, 17, BG10,15, Y21,28, YR23, W1,3. I just had to have flowers anf ribbons and lots of sparkle!!! I found this paper with the right color of blue and little/big red stars on it. It seemed to be just right. I punched the red lacy, glittery paper with a Martha Stewart punch - love making my own lace!  I do love this image, she is fairly new to my stash! I needed a thank you card and found a nice thank you sticker in my stash. Hope you enjoy this one nearly as much as I enjoyed making her.
We have been doing some major yard work as well as blinds (inside the house!) and I have not had much time or energy for much else. Sorry for the long dry spell! I did make another card but don't have time to post it today. Hugs to you all, Barb

That's so sparkly and pretty Barb. Funny that I recognize that DP as I just used that on my last post, lol. Very pretty Tilda and fun stars add ons :o)

Your little Tilda is so cute and the coloring spectacular. I love the way you used punches to create the lace corners.
